decades of conflict with the government of myanmar forced many ethnic karens to flee. deborah and her family crossed into thailand in 1984. last year the two sides agreed to a cease-fire for the first time since fighting began. despite sporadic crashes, real strides for reconciliation are gaining momentum. at this college set up by deborah's group, most students move to the united states or australia after graduation. others choose to stay in thailand to teach refugee children. but recently some students say they want to return to myanmar. >> i want to be a doctor. i will help to improve the lives of karen people. i want to open up a hospital there. >> reporter: deborah believes if myanmar continues to reform young karens will have the chance to return in the near future. she's speeding up preparations for when that day comes. the group is compiling a new textbook for elementary school first-graders. they have new programs to think about. in the camps children study karen language and history. but in myanmar the vast majority of the population is burmese. schools in myanmar have no pr

, is a very different thing. it's something karen discovered when she jumped in on a growing trend, but she and many others are finding tonight's bay area proud. if your travels have taken you through san jose, you may have noticed a few new libraries popping up. those built with bond money, but also that one built in ron's garage. the one that sits atop daughter karen's fence. >> you put the harry potter books in there. >> it's called a little free library and karen's is far from the only one. part of a trend started in wisconsin a few years ago, there are now some 6,000 little free libraries around the world. more popping up in the bay area each week. and while each one is home made and therefore unique, the concept is what links them together. take a book, return a book. that's it. a library with no due dates, no late fees, and no closing hours. karen put hers up a few weeks ago, she knew she had done the right thing after her first customer stopped by, a little neighbor boy. her put his dr. seuss book in, and took another one out and left, and i thought, oh, it was just -- it was so

karen finney, and former dnc communications director, we have guy benson, political editor for and mark simone wor radio talk show host. good evening, everybody. >> hey, larry. >> guy benson, let me start with you. if you're talking about restricting automatic guns. if you're talking about restricting these 100-bullet magazine cartridges and so forth, you can't do that by executive. >> well, i totally agree with that. and you are sometimes starting to hear automatic weapons con flated with semiautomatic weapons conflated with automatic assault weapons. some of the jargon that goes on. you're 100% right, i'm not a conservative when it comes to gun-related issues. i think that any restriction has to meet a constitutional test. and also the test of whether or not it'll actually remedy the problem that presents itself. if we're going to do this, at least do it the way that governor cuomo is doing it, through the legislative process, rather than the way the president has attempted to do it as he has time and again where hep finds congress to be rather convenienced so he

, we're looking good, karen. >> and when the dow is down -- >> how bad is it? >> yeah, it usually holds. >> that's sort of interesting. it's not going to go into how we pick what to invest in, but i hope that's the case. i agree with what timmy said. could we see a small pull-back? that wouldn't be surprising to anyone. i'm long this market. >> karen, if you were to put on your soothe saying outfit and -- >> love that outfit. i love that outfit. >> oh, that -- yeah, i was going to say, that's michael kors. me drinking coors. what i would go with here is, i think -- >> just stop. >> where are you going here? >> just stop right now, jon. just get to the point. >> get to the point. >> what i think is, we are most likely to see that correction that you're talking about, and that everybody's talked about here, sometime in the two or three weeks preceding the sequestrati sequestration, the first week in march. that's when you are most likely to see it. not necessarily tomorrow. >> let's get more on the market and whether or not january's gains will mean gains for the year. bring in rebecca pa

back to what karen was saying, i think those are all very positive things that are happening for bank of america. removing all the litigation. but isn't this something they've already kind of told us all along the way? and so as much as i'm a buyer of that, and i -- >> and that was his point, as well. the shares are discounting all the cost cuts already. >> i think from a trading perspective, i think the stock, it stopped right on the 20-day. i think this is a place to buy. i don't think it's expensive. if i compare it to a morgan stanley or even one of the investment banks where i think they're going to start earning a lot more from their fixed income and trading business because people counted those as dead, bank of america's gotten a lot of good will here, so. >> quick question to you here as we await wells fargo earnings on friday. goldman sachs had a note out, you want to be invested with the banks, into the banks that have the most lefers to still pull. you don't want to be in the best of breed. all of that's in the stock already. >> i think wells fargo probably fits that m

understanding that you know, sometimes doesn't even take words. >> joining me now, msnbc's karen finney who served as deputy press secretary to clinton, and press secretary, co-authoring a book about the 2016 prospects. karen finney, what do you know to be the truth here about hillary clinton's feelings about president obama? and explain to us how people can get over the first clip, in what we showed about them running against each other. >> people don't realize it, but the club of people who have been either president or first lady is very, very small. so in many ways, hillary clinton is one of the few people, her husband being another one close to this parent who really understands in a very visceral personality level what it is to be president. what it is to try to raise children in the white house. what it is to try to make decisions on a daily basis. so i believe that their friendship is very sincere, because it is part of the reason that you see presidents, former presidents become friends after they have left the white house. because again, there are only a few people who

political analyst, karen finny. columnist for the hill. republican strategist alice stork. i want to start out right away playing for everybody how senator john mccain, also a member of the immigration 8, talked about what this bipartisan plan means and also what it means for the gop. take a listen. >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. >> alice, for a variety of reasons it was not. mainly because of the anti-immigration rhetoric that was doled out by the standard bear. mitt romney all through 2012. can this reverse that course? >> oh, it sure can. we learned a lesson. i think this is a great first step. the framework for this plan being that it's a good consensus of republicans and democrats. it's a great start. i think victoria hit on it. senator rubio also hit on it. fairness is critical in this. the framers of this immigration plan say this is tough, but it's fair. that's important. those that have been going about obtaining citi

priorities be for 2013? let's bring in karen finney, the hill columnist and former dnc director. jennifer ruben, author of "the washington post" right turn blog. peter souterman, reason magazine senior editor. karen, i think his top priority, or nearly so, are going to be immigration reform and gun control, both of which are very weak spots for the republican party. what is your thought? >> you know what, larry? we agree. although i would add to that that obviously given the structure of the so called deal that we got over the course of the last 24 hours, part two, is going to clearly be at the top of the agenda starting next week, and obviously with the debt ceiling. so that sort of economic piece. but then in addition to that, absolutely, immigration reform. and i would call it gun safety because i don't think there's much control going on, will absolutely have to stay at the top of the list. >> and jen, let's leave the economic stuff aside. we've done the whole show on that and sick of the fiscal cliff. i think the republicans have got a serious problem on immigration reform, ok? they'

wells fargo. >> karen? >> alcoa is first. aa. coming up first in the book. other than that, i don't see it as a read through to much. >> harder this time around concerning we've got positive data from the automakers already and boeing is clouded with a whole other myriad of problems of its own. this is not necessarily a read through into the strength of the a a e r aerospace industry. back on december 18th, moody's put alcoa on a negative review with a positive downgrade to junk status. while aluminum prices have picked up by 3.9% per ton, maybe that's not enough. >> well, i think what you really needed to see was some sort of stabilization. anything that sees some sort of growing or stable growth in china, i think, is obviously an area where you can start to think you might be a buyer here. look, this stock had a lot of bad news priced into it, as well. so, all of that -- all of the news about a potential downgrade on the credit side was baked into the equity price. i think we would be a better buyer of it at these levels. >> in terms of earnings season overall, j.j., which ones ar

president following the tragedy. joining me, karen finney, washington bureau chief david corn, and assistant editor for "fortune," leigh gallagher. he and the vice president outlined other proposals they hope will put an end to incidents like the sandy hook shooting. >> i have no illusions about what we're up against or how hard the task is in front of us, but i also have never seen a nation's conscience so shaken by what happened at sandy hook. the world has changed, and it's demanding action. >> what we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them and shield them from harm and give them the tools they need to grow up and do everything that they are capable of doing, not just to pursue their own dreams, but to help build this country. this is our first task as a society. i'm putting forward a specific set of proposals based on the work of joe's task force, and in the days ahead, i intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them a reality. because while there is no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence completely, no pie

communications director karen finney. senior political reporter at politico, maggie haberman. and mr. sunday morning himself, we say it so officially here, editor of "the new york times" magazine, hugo lindgren. sam stein is caught on a train somewhere between newark and penn station. moving on, what started as praise for secretary clinton's tenure as secretary of state soon evolved into a partisan debate with republicans demanding to know if the administration misled the american public over benghazi. >> we were misled there were supposedly protests and something sprang out of that, assaults sprang out of that. that was easily ascertained that was not the fact, and the american people could have known that within days, and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of protests or guys out on a walk one night decided to kill some americans. what difference, at this point, does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again. >> surprising exactly no one, senator joh

. >> when the gdp number hit the tape, karen, were you surprised we were able to look past it? we did see the futures go lower and it just kind of -- as if it didn't happen. >> yeah, funny that the same information in another era, three months ago would have been a disaster. i don't know how to account for it. starting to see the volatility index speak to that. you can probably speak much better about that than i. >> it has picked up dramatically. 7.5% today. after -- what, four out of the last five days, we've seen the vix rise. made it through 14 today, after being in the low 12s just a couple of days ago, so, this is a pretty big move, but it's also what you'd expect when we're up against an area where people are looking for a correction. >> people startled defending that gdp number right out of the gate. >> right, it was the lack of government, the drought. >> inventories, everybody. everyone jumped more over it. more so than i've ever seen in it in my life. >> it's all about what's forward. you can ignore what happened. >> that was so three months ago. >> that speaks to the compl

own. i know that karen mccarthy is going to introduce symbolic -- largely symbolic legislation on the house side. the senate side we're expecting dianne feinstein to introduce her legislation around the time of the inaugural. is something meaningful going to happen on guns this year? >> i hope so. the president has appointed joe biden to be head of this commission, and he believes something reasonable. you know, you can put reasonable limits on who gets guns without interfering with the legitimate second amendment rights that are enshrined in the constitution. we on the liberal side of things have to accept that. you can put reasonable limits on any amendment. first amendment, you can't scream fire falsely in a theater. those are limits on the first amendment. limits on the second amendment that prohibit criminals, the mentally infirmed, spousal abusers from getting guns and tightening up those laws as congresswoman mccarthy's legislation does, and i carry that in the senate, make reasonable sense, and i hope we can come together in the middle. not extreme legislation that will scare

political analyst karen finney on the harsh reality ahead. stay with us. >>> one of the things we got to do is put a legal architecture in place, and we need congressional help to do that to make sure that not only am i reined in, but any president is reined in terms of some of the decisions we're making. >> that was president obama back in october, addressing concerns over the nation's drone strike program, part of the larger war on terrorism. despite the kind of campaign rhetoric, the obama administration has taken few steps to rein in the program intended to target terrorists. the president has insisted that drones have been used only to prevent an operational plot against the united states. yet as the guardian reports, america's use of drones has soared during obama's time in office, with the white house authorizing attacks in at least four countries -- afghanistan, pakistan, yemen and somalia. it's estimated that the cia and the united states military have undertaken more than three hundred drone strikes and killed about 2500 people. it's clear we have yet to understand the full

right to our panel. with us from washington msnbc political analyst karen finney, and democratic strategist julian epstein. karen, if i might begin with you, the president of the nra, david keene, says an assault weapons ban would never make it through congress and that any limits on high capacity ammunition clips would also fail and larry pratt h executive director of the gun owners of america, says background checks are a complete waste of time. so why don't we all now go home and look forward to the next mass shooting. >> yeah. we might as well. you know what? and while we're at it let's give up on the debt ceiling, give up on health care implementation. you know, why bother? we're not going to solve any problems because it's going to be too hard to ask our members of congress to do their job? here is the thing though, you know, look at how intensified and ugly the rhetoric got last week, talks of insurrection and 1776 and stalin and hitler and then over the weekend these pronouncements that it's not going to happen, no way. what that tells you they're becoming increasingly de
